I got the sticky paper hair rollers for our clothes and then I discovered the Pledge Pet Hair roller thing. WOW! It works great! I use it on the couch, our duvet, the chairs, even my clothes when I am out of the sticky paper roller thing. The only problem with the Pledge thing is it's NOT (made to be) REUSABLE. It's a shame it's not reusable because it's made of plastic and it fills with fur really fast so we needed to get one almost every week. It was making our house fur-free but what was it doing to the landfills? My husband, Dustin McGuyver Woods, was losing sleep over this. How could we continue to rid our house of excess fur, be environment friendly, and still have money for our trips to Starbucks? He got to work and solved our problem.
The lid to the pet hair thing is secured to the base with plastic posts on all sides. He clipped the posts on both short ends (one on each end) and along one long side (3 posts) so that the lid opens like a door. He scooped all the fur out with his fingers and closed the lid. Because he is a man, he secured it with a screw. I would've used tape. Now we can use and reuse our pet hair thing and not need to keep buying new ones. We just undo the screw and empty the fur when it is full, then reuse. The plastic posts can be clipped with nail clippers or wire cutters, whatever you cut with that is easy and you won't hurt yourself. Just leave one side attached so it acts like a hinge. If you use a screw to keep the lid closed, be sure it is a short one so your furniture doesn't get scratched.
Now I wonder if McGuyver Woods can create a self-emptying litter box.
